Click Consult: 15 years of search marketing excellence!

Jul 9th, 2018

Summer 2018 sees us celebrate an incredible 15 years of Click Consult – and what a journey it’s been…

We’ve been in the digital marketing industry since 2003. As search marketing became an increasingly key component for online success, we grew rapidly, and learnt a lot along the way.

The past decade and half has seen our team grow and develop into the talented, experienced and skilled bunch we are today, with a philosophy of delivering tangible, measurable results for all of our clients, be they in the finance, pharmaceutical, training & education or retail sectors (to name but a few).

We’re very proud of the success we’ve achieved – here’s our story…


Click Consult is born…


Three years in, we have 11 staff and 80 clients.


The introduction of SEO Consult: In 2007, we started to complement our PPC management solutions with a range of search engine optimisation services, by recruiting experienced technical staff to head our dedicated SEO division, SEO Consult.


At the end of 2008, we’re now delivering services across all search marketing disciplines for 175 clients and expanded our staff number to 30 digital marketing professionals.



We move to larger premises in Hooton, Cheshire, to facilitate further growth.


We consolidate our brand as Click Consult!
